bor,

That's wonderful!!! I wish you all the success, it will be a nice ride and a cheap ride compared to $8 a gal!!!! Look like you're going with thru-hub exhaust judging by the elbows - nice & quite - again good luck and show as more as you progress!

joe,

thx ,need the luck it s one hell of a job to do just in my spare time ,I work 6 days a week so that leaves the sundays and 4 evenings to complete the job, but she is gonna ride this season ,that's a must !!
about the exhaust youre right This the easiest way to go and l look how it performs can always make a better flow thru hull but hope this will work .

the bravo drives I have changed for 2 xr ratio 1 :1.50 because of the diesel tq wich they still doesn,t like I think but will found out .

bor,

Don't quite understand your gear ratios remark? I think you now have 1.5 gears? If you don't break the props loose and don't floor the throttles from a dead stop - run the boat like you'd run a Sea Ray, they last for awhile. It's the loading and unloading quickly that breaks things, but it will wear faster!

LESSONLEARNED,

There was pretty much a whole thread about that boat on here. I think it was left as something to the effect, "doesn't run as good as planned, going to play with props and will keep us all informed".

I don't recall seeing anything else about it but it is a stunning boat.

bor,

Wouldn't know where to start but it would have to be real big!!! At that prop speed you need all the dia you can get to have anykind of push/thrust with that. The small dia props that normally go with that drive won't do anything at the rpm's you'll be turning - you need dia!
